But even though this is so, that is, that Bon is willing to commit an ethical violation, it does not in any way excuse Sutpen from his failure to acknowledge his son. Sutpen still carries the burden of the guilt for denying his son. Only at the end of the Civil War does Bon finally realize that Sutpen will never acknowledge him. He then sets in motion his plan to marry Judith, his half sister. His reasoning is probably that Sutpen will then be forced to acknowledge him in order to prevent the marriage.

For example, could Sutpen have meant to name his mulatto daughter Cassandra instead of Clytemnestra? Clytemnestra was the wife of Agamemnon, who led the Greeks in the defeat of the Trojans in the Trojan War. She killed both her husband and Cassandra.

Thus, if Sutpen meant to call his daughter Cassandra, he had fathered the daughter who would preside over the destruction of the Sutpen dynasty.
